Kwame Christian is the host of one of the top negotiation podcasts in the country, Negotiate Anything. He’s also the founder and owner of his own law firm, The Law Office of Kwame Christian, a mediator, a public speaker, and all-around just one of the best people you’ll ever meet. In this episode we have a lot of fun learning about Kwame’s childhood, his parents path to the United States, his method for time management and achieving an ultra-level of success in life (such as earning his Masters in Public Policy while going through Law Schoo), what he’s learned through negotiation and consulting, and what the future looks like for him and his family!
